Relief of TMJ disorders and snoring
The TMJ-MBV is a sleeping appliance for snorers and mouth breathers. It features four large breathing holes and a 7mm air spring base for increased bite opening and gentle temporomandibular joint (TMJ) decompression. If a larger appliance is required, there is also an 11mm base version available. The TMJ-MBV allows for free movement of the mandible when in place, ideal for patients with an existing TMJ disorder.
TMJ-MBV Design Features
The TMJ-MBV is specifically designed for mouth breathers and snorers, unable to nasal breath comfortably, who suffer from TMJ disorder symptoms. The higher vertical sides of the TMJ-MBV provide better comfort and retention, particularly when the mouth is open.
Directions for Use
The TMJ-MBV appliance is to be used for one to two hours each day, plus overnight while sleeping. The patient’s teeth may become slightly sensitive in the early stages of treatment. This is quite normal, however, if pain becomes excessive, decrease application time with the aim to build it back up once the appliance is accustomed to and sensitivity subsides.
Cleaning the TMJ-MBV
The TMJ-MBV appliance should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth.
Cleaning tablets should be used to thoroughly clean twice a week.
